Softening Black and White With Pastel Pink
If you saw my September Favorites post/video, then you remember this Kate Spade tote. It’s such a fun, girly-girl color; and for when I’m feeling really playful, the other side says, “Skirt The Issues”. (It also came with a cute hula girl bag charm.)
I thought I’d show it today because it’s still available here (and on sale!); plus, Kate Spade has come out with another very similar pastel-pink tote called the Leewood Place Rainn. It has scalloped trim and a zippered top (mine has an open top).
I love wearing pastel pink year round, especially with white, grey, and ivory. In the heart of a cold winter, it’s also wonderful for taking the edge off dark colors like black, chocolate brown, burgundy, gun metal, and navy.
The day I wore this outfit, I was meeting friends at a restaurant in North Naples called Grain de Cafe. It’s a charming little place and the food is great. I shot my outfit behind the restaurant, just before heading into lunch. A firetruck drove by while I was modeling by myself in the road. I felt so ridiculous!
But such is the life of vlogging!

Scenes From The Vlog
GRAIN DE CAFE, NAPLES, FLORIDA
(ABOVE & BELOW) At Grain de Cafe in North Naples, patrons have the option of dining indoors or under umbrellas outside on a patio. This Lifeguard Hat is a men’s size. It’s more comfortable because it’s loose on my head. Unfortunately, because the straw isn’t tightly woven, sun does peek through the holes. For when I feel I’ll be out in the sun longer I wear this Women’s Size hat, which is more tightly woven.
(ABOVE) There is an extensive menu, including breakfast items. I chose the Salad de La Mer. (I left off the cocktail sauce and had brought my own organic, homemade salad dressing.)
